High school students interesting in art have an opportunity to submit their work for exhibition and consideration for a partial college scholarship. Next month, the Lahaina Arts Association will host its 37th annual Art Exhibit and Scholarship Contest for graduating high school seniors from Maui County.
Interested students may enter one piece of work in each of the five competition categories: painting, drawing, three-dimension, photography and mixed media. Tuition assistance scholarship awards include $1,000 for the Best in Show Award. Additional $500 awards will be presented in each of the five categories. In addition, LAA will present gift certificates in an honorable mention category.
LAA is accepting entries at the Old Jail Gallery from 10am to 3pm on April 4 and 5. Artwork will be exhibited at the gallery April 6-19. A special artists’ reception will be held on April 19 at 4pm in the Old Jail Gallery to award scholarships and honor contest participants.
